Union of Dannieh Municipalities, Lebanon(黎巴嫩,丹尼区)


Engaging the citizen to be part of the Emergency Response Plan to fight against COVID-19

抗击疫情的应急响应计划

Dannieh, although rich in its resources, was lack of funding due to the economic crisis. Under this circumstance, the Union of Dannieh Municipalities relied the most on government funding (independent municipal funds), whose suspension has influenced the Union and hindered the city from effectively responding to the pandemic. To deal with the impact of COVID-19, the Union of Dannieh Municipalities, cooperating with the Citizen Social Organizations (CSOs), has established an Emergency Response Plan with 15 youth volunteer committees. This plan encourages citizens, especially young people, to jointly participate in governance, which alleviates labor and fund shortage problems.

黎巴嫩丹尼区资源丰富,但受经济危机影响十分贫困;丹尼区城镇联盟主要依靠政府提供资金(独立的市政基金),但前段时间政府停止拨款,使联盟的工作受到了影响,这对该地有效应对新冠疫情造成了极大阻碍。针对这一情况,在公民社会组织(CSOs)的支持下,丹尼区城镇联盟与青年志愿者组成的15个委员会合作,共同制定了一套应急预案,以应对新冠疫情带来的影响,弥补人员与资金的短缺,并鼓励公民(特别是年轻人)共同参与治理。

This initiative relied on technology like shared folders, zoom meetings and WhatsApp groups, which have helped facilitate communication between committees inside the cell and with people. By combining multimedia technology and traditional means, this initiative quickly and effectively connects the municipal staff, other municipalities under its umbrella, the 15 committees, citizens, and the community. What is more, it encouraged citizens to be more active and involved in the project, contributing their wisdom and skills to fight against the pandemic.

该项目运营依赖技术的运用,通过建立共享文件夹和聊天应用程序群组,促进小组内部委员会之间以及与人员之间的沟通。通过使用多媒体和新技术,结合传统方法,让市政工作人员、联盟属下的其他城市、15个委员会、市民和普通社区迅速有效地获得信息。项目在疫情期间充分发挥群众力量,让市民积极活跃地发挥他们能力和技能,抗击疫情。
